Being in Ireland only a short time one learns to always carry rain gear! The day our tour group visited the Cliffs of Moher began overcast and mist rain. But as we approached the cliffs the rain did stop but the clouds did remain. No matter we did get to climb both sides of the magnificent Cliffs of Moher with the breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. The approach is well laid out with a rock path to follow and some rock steps. This is a safe climb although it does go up in altitude. Along with the beautiful ocean you will find pastures on both sides where sheep, goats and cattle are grazing. I am sure in wild flower season you would find a beautiful landscape of flowers. After we climbed both sides of the cliffs we entered into the museum area. It is well laid out and has a gift shop, water and restrooms.
We then rode to an area called The Burren. This area is night and day from the cliffs. The rolling green hills slowly diminish and in their place there are small rocks and dirt. The landscape is very flat but the history is fascinating. Upon a short walk from the motorcoach you will see a monument of time. Thousands of years ago this area was used as a burial ground. Large bolders mark the area of the tomb.
Both areas are totally worth your time and effort to visit and enjoy.
